The living dead

I had seen him before many times without it registering with me, but today I found out who Rick Genest is {aka, Zombie Boy}. I thought it quite apt it happened on Halloween morning. Additional bonus – he’s Canadian.

You may recognize Rick from Lady Gaga’s ‘Born this Way‘ video, where he shot to international fame earlier this year.

    Impressive and shocking. There is something very appealing about the anatomical accuracy of his tattoos.
    Beautiful. Thanks for sharing and happy Halloween!

    I can't get over the accuracy of his tattoos from every angle. And I like even more that he's a model.

    Happy Halloween! 🙂

    wow, that's intense.
    i am on the fence about tattoos – looks cool now, but what happens as he ages and his skin sags…?
    very cool though, i've never seen him before 🙂

    That's what I think of too. A big one for me is that I wouldn't want my future children to … think less of me? So I'm hesitant. I'm conscious of the things I don't even have yet.
